Co-Founder & CFO
Aside from having over 20 years in start-up experience, Nish was instrumental in bringing professional hockey back to San Diego. Nish built the Poway Ice Arena, official practice facility of the San Diego Gulls (NHL affiliate of the Anaheim Ducks). Nish took his experiences in start-ups to build an NHL level ice rink and negotiate a long-term deal with an anchor tenant, the Anaheim Ducks. Building an ice rink took the ability to raise capital, negotiate deals, manage construction, and start operations. Very much like all the characteristics required for a start-up. Hockey has been Nish’s passion since growing up in Canada and Nish was able to bring that passion to San Diego. The Poway Ice Arena opened October 2015 and in less than a year all the ice at the arena is sold out.
